Our Year of Dates December date: Visiting the Temple Lights and enjoying a hot chocolate date night. This is a cheap holiday date that is always fun, and perfect for a 12 months of dates gift!
This has been one amazing year with our 12 Months of Dates! Each month we look forward to the pre-planned, pre-paid date I gave Jacob for Christmas last year.
Temple Lights Date
December can be such a chaotic month that sometimes it’s hard to find time to go on dates, and this year proved to be exceptionally busy. We were lucky enough to fit in a weeknight date and go see the temple lights that they put up every year at the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple.
It really is quite the site and one of the prettiest places to visit at Christmas.
And we did reflect on the reason of the season, it was a fun and spiritual evening.
It was a nice break from all the chaos of Christmas, even if we nearly froze to death!
Hot Chocolate Date
After a cold activity outside, it’s always a great idea to include a hot chocolate date!
It was easy to remedy the freezing party with the second part of this date- hot chocolate at Starbucks!
Jacob went with the salted caramel hot chocolate and a raspberry chocolate cake pop.
I went with white chocolate peppermint and chocolate peppermint cake pop- definitely soaking up the peppermint while I can! I highly recommend trying the white chocolate hot chocolate for a great mix-up. Also, peppermint flavor just seems to pair well with temple lights!
We have had one really amazing year with the 12 Months of Dates, thanks again for the wonderful idea, Shannon Brown! And here’s the spoiler alert- I gave another year to Jacob for Christmas this year! I can’t wait to post all about it, as well as give a recap on the 12 months we experienced this year. Stay tuned, this week should make for some fun posts!
